Are you an ambitious college student ready to further your education beyond the classroom? Are you looking for an opportunity to experience the inner workings of a rapidly growing media company? If you are, then TheBlaze may be the place for you. We are looking for passionate, energetic and driven students who want to be on the front lines of a cutting-edge network.
TheBlaze hires interns every spring, summer and fall across multiple departments. We repeat, we hire interns — not maids, not cappuccino toting minions, not copy-machine slaves. At TheBlaze, interns are real, paid media junkie professionals because we believe you can do more than balance coffee trays on behalf of our professionals with caffeine affinities.
We are committed to providing a rewarding experience that involves a learn-by-doing approach with guidance from some of the top leaders in the industry. It is our goal as an organization to give our interns the tools to learn, create, develop and implement new professional skills so that you can graduate from the program as a well-balanced and sharp media professional.
What To Expect
The aim for our internship program is to reflect the true nature of the business. Our interns are immersed in the daily tasks and responsibilities of this fast-paced media environment. Interns can expect work assignments that will not only be a great learning opportunity, but will also provide key functions to help TheBlaze reach its goals. In this role, interns are exposed to a variety of business issues and quickly learn the fundamentals of TheBlaze business model.
Interns are also matched with a mentor in their department – usually a department manager. This mentorship provides interns with an opportunity to learn from our seasoned professionals. Plus, our mentors work to create an experience that can best strengthen the skills of the students.
In addition to our commitment to offering an enriching program, we are dedicated to paying our interns for their hard work day in and out. Our interns are paid $10 per hour or the state minimum, whichever is higher.
